abcnews.go.com reports: Democratic operative Jim Messina, who headed up former President Obama’s successful 2012 re-election campaign, says he has met with representatives of 16 potential Democratic candidates who want to run against President Donald Trump. But he told ABC News’ “Powerhouse Politics” co-host Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl, even more people want to throw their hat in the ring.
“The good news for Democrats is there are 24 people thinking they could run for president. That’s a historic bench.”
And he’s excited about the Oprah Winfrey buzz.
“There’s a whole bunch of people trying to encourage her to run.”
